A fan named Roger from Queens asks the Atlanta rhymer if he should keep it real with his 35-year-old aspiring rapper friend who is "below average on the mic." "Would it be right of me to tell him to quit rapping since his friends are afraid to do so?"
Gucci responds with giving him facts about his own career. "I am a 35-year-old rapper myself and I am at the best stage in my career and I think though your friend may not be a great rapper, if he is a great hustler and promoter, he still can find success," Guwop answers. "So let him pursue his dreams. Who is he hurting by trying to do something he finds is fun and he is passionate about?"
